History of Ottawa

by Art of Headshots Portrait Studio

Odaawaa /oʊˈdɒwə/ meant “traders” named by the Algonquian language family. This was a large family of smaller tribal groups which would be a dialect of Ojibwe. This land was habited by the Ojibwe and Potawatomi peoples.

In 1613 it would be called Wrightstown and in 1854 the railway reached Bytown adjacent to Wrightstown, in 1855 it would be incorporated as a city with a new name – Ottawa. In 1857 Queen Victoria deemed Ottawa the capital of Canada.

Today, Ottawa is a flourished city short of 1 million inhabitants with residents speaking English and French living in harmony blocks of each other while proudly bearing a variation of the Algonquian word trade Odaawaa now translated to Ottawa.
